ATLANTA (AP) - Javier Vazquez pitched four perfect innings to
continue a strong spring showing by Atlanta's starters and Omar
Infante hit a two-run homer to lead the Braves to a 3-1 exhibition
win over the Detroit Tigers on Friday night.
Vazquez needed only 40 pitches, including 30 strikes, to retire
each of the 12 batters he faced.
Atlanta starters have a 2.38 ERA and 13-5 record with only
Saturday's exhibition against the Tigers remaining before Sunday's
opener at Philadelphia.
Vazquez, acquired in an offseason trade with the Chicago White
Sox, and five relievers combined for a five-hitter.
Detroit's Zach Miner gave up four hits and three runs in 4 2-3
innings. He walked four batters.
